I had a okay laptop some years ago but the hinges broke and the power plug is either loose or broke. So I have been contemplating a new laptop purchase and a good planetary webcam such as the ZWO 224MC. I would use the laptop to collect the video frames but I was wondering if the ZWO camera could be used with a PC style tablet to allow be to use the FireCapture software and collect the frames.
Memory might be an issue? Wouldn't want a bunch of dropped frames.
Any ideas or should I just spring for a good laptop with lots of memory and large solid state drive.
i really want to get back into imaging the planets especially with Mars approaching earth.
